Daido Loori & Coping are fantastic. Arrows in Her wasn't to shabby either, but the vocals are kind of a turnoff at times IMO.

It's best to read this topic and watch the video before posting on this topic.

As it seems there's still some proper screamo bands out there but as far as emo goes it has gone down the hill. I can hear a few parts that resemble emo but for the most part it's indie pop/post-punk sounds combined.

What SCREAMiNGRAiNBOWS posted hardly fits at all, most of it is pop music. Fiesta Minor sounds good but if anything that's melodic hardcore with a tint of emo and not screamo. Lastletters. fits best.

RE: new emo / screamo bands
I've seen that video before and I did read up on that thread and maybe I am confused with what Emo is but that's okay because genre labeling takes a lot of attention. I understand that Screamo/Emo evolves from Hardcore Punk and that isn't considered to be Metal but separating them from actual Hardcore/Punk is what I see as the hard thing.

I'll take this as a learning progress and start with my iTunes library and what I have labeled with the Emo genre; understanding the fine line between what separates them from that genre is what I feel is going to be the hardest thing to do.

In the video, besides what Emo "sounds" like, what should you look for in the bands or in that genre that separates it from Hardcore Punk or Punk music?


I took it upon myself and read as much as I could about Emo. This is what I gathered:

Rites of Spring started Emo in the mid-1980's during the Hardcore Punk movement.

Sunny Day Real Estate incorporated "Pop-Punk" into the mix in the early 1990's, which started bands like Jimmy Eat World who came along and completely transformed where true Emo comes from by creating a subgenre, Emo Pop.

Somewhere in the 90's during the time that Thursday and Taking Back Sunday were making Emo Pop known, they also brought the subgenre of Emo- Screamo into the mainstream. Though, Screamo started from bands like Pg. 99, Orchid, and Saetia during that same time.

But because of bands like Underoath and Alexisonfire people have became confused from where Screamo has really originated from therefore assuming that most Post-Hardcore bands are of the Screamo/Emo genre.

I guess it just all comes with the "sound" and whether the music has been infected with the "Pop" sound or "mainstream" sound.

I gathered most of this from Wiki but, I feel like it seems to be an accurate understanding as to where and how Emo/Screamo was formed and transformed into the media.

I have already had a good understanding as to what true Screamo is but now I am on the path to having a better understanding as to what Emo is.

If we solely stuck by Emo in terms of being "emotional," all of these bands would be that but when it comes down to what is true to the genre and what isn't true to the genre, we would only check Rites of Spring, Pg. 99, Orchid, and Saetia off the list.

RE: new emo / screamo bands
Sunny Day Real Estate didn't create a new genre, they were influenced by emo bands but made pop/pop rock themselves, maybe even indie rock.

One thing I always try to think of when I'm determining genres is whether it sounds ''hardcore'' or not. If it doesn't sound loud and aggressive like ordinary hardcore punk, then it's not emo or hardcore punk or screamo..
Aan de oevers van de tijd,
